looking for the best activertypub implementation to falk to build a news service as a part of the #indymedia reboot.

looking at pleroma.social/ what do people think.

@witchescauldron I'm not sure there is any good #activitypub implementation for #Indymedia yet.
Even the #Wordpress implementation… needs Wordpress to works, with all its security problems.
Also, it would miss an agenda/calendar to organize events.
The best alternative I could see is still a work in progress. It's called #Diffu, and it is not well financed yet.

@witchescauldron You may add #Mobilizon to organize events.
Most of these tools misses something to be well used together : a centralized authentication, with LDAP or something else.

@parleur @Diffu @ajeremias the plan is to keep it simple based on existing open standards and codebase. Underlining the #indymedia front end is a #kiss #OMN network based on the #4opens the more privacy focused part of the network will be based on #scuttlebut with a bridge from open to closed working and thinking.

Actavism based respect fot "Diversity of strategies" is core to the network reboot.

@witchescauldron @parleur @Diffu @ajeremias SSB is a reasonable choice because of the offline first aspect. It would be difficult to disrupt or block SSB networks, which don't even necessarily need the internet.

The one down side which you might encounter is that on a phone SSB/Metaverse uses gigabytes of storage, which is more than my phone has. I bet many people will be using older phones like mine.

@bob @witchescauldron @parleur @Diffu @ajeremias its going to take time for the networks to spread and old second hand phones with SD cards are cheap. Have one of the SSB app developers involved in dev.

Surely, this is missing the point, no?? is not (to the best of my knowledge) is able to be federated (outside of the Scuttleverse) - which to my reading is less publicly understood & never mind the uptake
= this does little to solve the ongoing IMHO.

The use of the web pubs in SSB could act as a activertypub/SSB bridge... its just data.

As both aproches have value for a radical media network.

open/closed with bridges... recognising that data is just data in a world.
